I like the idea of trading Cassel and Albert in a package deal. If we couldn't, I'd even be willing to include our own 6th or 7th round draft pick to move Cassel in a trade to get our from under that entire salary. With Stephenson in the fold at OT, I'm ok with trading Albert if it looks like we'll be targeting a LT early in the 1st round. Getting the Cassel/Albert combo off the books essentially resets the Chiefs' free agent approach while only losing 1 starting player. Lose 1 starter and gain appx $17m in cap space... uh, duh!
This FA season is a buyer's market. There are going to be some GREAT values out there over the next couple weeks... especially in the CB market. Having an additional $17M in maneuvering room could go an extremely long way to making this team a contender next season. I love this idea.
